A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun state, Prince Dotun Babayemi, on Wednesday said some people were after his life because he approached the court seeking to replace Adeleke as the authentic PDP governorship candidate.

In a statement signed by him obtained in Osogbo, Babayemi said some people have been sending messages threatening him over the court case.

An Osogbo Federal High Court, as well as the Court of Appeal, Akure, had held that Senator Ademola Adeleke was the authentic PDP governorship candidate.

But Babayemi, after the ruling of the Court of Appeal, vowed to appeal the judgment, unless necessary steps were taken to address anomalies in the party.

Babayemi, who said he had reported those threatening him to security agencies, however, implored his supporters, stakeholders and party members across the state to continue to be law-abiding.

The statement read in parts, “Before and after the July 16 governorship election in Osun, I have received a number of voice notes; some laced with vituperation and different insults being hauled at me while some are outright threat to my life. I can’t fathom why some people have chosen this dangerous and uncivilised lane.

“Those sending threatening voice notes and their sponsors have failed. No matter how, the course of justice can not be circumvented through such crude means. Besides, nobody can intimidate me.”
